Aimed at Clinicians and Managers, this virtual conference will provide a practical guide to human factors in healthcare, and how a human factors approach can improve patient care, quality, process and safety.

“Of all the sectors in which Human Factors can deliver a contribution to safer and better life, the Health and Social Care sector is arguably the one that currently stands to benefit the most.”

Human Factors for Health and Social Care White Paper 2018, the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors

“Human Factors is the science and professional practice applied by many safety critical industries to understand and improve system performance and staff well-being. Health and Social Care has lagged behind other industries in embedding Human Factors within its education and training activities, leadership development pathways, and the wider system transformation and improvement programmes.”
